08/24 - Updated with new models
Howdy and Welcome to Electronic Sauce!  This website was created to help both students and seasoned electrical engineers with circuit analysis.  It includes a helpful web app with supporting examples and additional tutorials that help refresh or build a strong electrical engineering background.

The main feature of this website is SAUCE: A Symbolic Acquisition Unit for Circuit Evaluation.

Most SPICE simulators only accept numerical input, but this app accepts both numeric and symbolic input. This comes in handy when you want to understand the significance of an element in a transfer function. The web app currently supports DC and AC Analysis with the models listed in the circuit elements section. The app is currently free to try, but future revisions may include more content, which may require a small fee.



Example applications with included netlists (just copy and paste into the app), a more detailed walk-through is provided in Examples page. The correct format is also listed below in the programmable circuit elements figure.

Examples: Remember to press the "Reset Simulation" button to enter another netlist

*If the application times out or resets chances are the input format is incorrect or the tool didn't converge on the solution. Once the simulation is complete scroll down and press the "Reset Simulation" button to input another netlist.






Below are the acceptable models and input format for simulation.
